Cartoon like sketch led to arrest of man accused of theft

Police issued an arrest warrant Wednesday for a male suspect charged with stealing cash last month from a Central Market stand in Lancaster. Police released a detailed description Tuesday, along with a hand-drawn sketch of Hung Phuoc Nguyen, submitted by a witness at the time. "We released all of those details together in our police log in the hope that someone recognizes the suspect," Lancaster city police said in a Facebook post. "This was not done in jest." Nguyen was positively identified by a witness as well as investigators and veteran officers who recognized his physical description and alleged motive, police said. "While the sketch provided by the witness may have appeared amateurish and cartoonish, it, along with the distinctive physical descriptors, jogged the memory of at least one investigator to provide a potential suspect name," Lancaster police said on the department's Crime Watch page.
